Wordsless or Wordsworth, my new name

There are times when I start writing and I know exactly what to say and there are other times where I am Wordless instead of Wordsworth. Communication has always been a struggle for me, both verbally and through the written word. I tend to ere on the side of being too cautious with my words because I know that everyone perceives words differently. Something that might mean one thing to me will mean something completely different to another person.

But one thing that I desire as the days go by is the ability to effectively communicate these things that I am feeling and going through daily. Things that I am learning and that are changing my life. Because if they mean something to me, maybe they will mean something to someone else.

I am sitting at Rockwells and didn't ever intend to spend this much time here tonight. But it has been really good. I've downloaded some music and I'm enjoying listening to it.

If you have a chance check out "Hope for Haiti Now".
It's a benefit concert full of wonderful artists raising money for Haiti, my personal favorite is Beyonce's Halo.

i completely understand and concur.

i like the point you made in saying "I know that everyone perceives words differently. Something that might mean one thing to me will mean something completely different to another person." - really good to think on.

AND i also MUST say a big YES to the following statement of: "one thing that I desire as the days go by is the ability to effectively communicate these things that I am feeling and going through daily. Things that I am learning and that are changing my life. Because if they mean something to me, maybe they will mean something to someone else." - well put. and i really do believe that we all learn something and receive comfort in lots of ways. and one way is reading something that makes us feel not alone...

okay...longest comment i've ever written in my life.
